Pipes Freezing Image

Below is a list of helpful hints to keep your pipes from freezing this winter.

Protect your water meter - If you have an outdoor meter pit, make sure the lid is not broken or missing. Indoor meters in unheated areas should be protected.

Keep your garage door closed - If your water meter is in an unheated garage, keep the door closed to protect it from the cold.

Insulate pipes or faucets in unheated areas - Wrapping pipes that run through unheated garages or crawl spaces may prevent freezing.

Leave the faucet running - A small steady stream of lukewarm water will help prevent pipes from freezing. This should be done at sinks where the pipes run along exterior walls.

Manufactured Homes - If you live in a manufactured home, it is recommended that you wrap and insulate your pipes rather than run the water.

Open doors below sinks - If a sink is located against an outside wall, open the cabinet doors to allow warm air to reach the pipes and prevent them from freezing.
